For a standard cremation service the fee is usually approximately £175, this includes a 1 hour meeting with you to discuss and agree what you want included in the 20 minute service and the part you want myself and others to play. This usually includes, agreeing music, poems or reading and an individual and personal eulogy. Photo's can often be included and shown in the background.
If my services are booked through your Funeral Director, the pricing is usually included in the fee your Funeral Director charges.
For a more individual funeral service or memorial, this will be priced according to the type of ceremony or event, and the ceremony can often be in addition to the regular or standard cremation or burial.
With a completely personalised ceremony, my services will represent a unique event, based on the life of your loved one, and your or the family’s wishes for them.
I DO NOT deliver a formula-based ceremony. Every element is attended to with meticulous focus to your needs. My services include
- A family meeting to discuss your wishes and to agree content for your service
- seating and speaking arrangements
- music recommendations
- gather information for the eulogy, then write and send to you for approval
- ceremony and order of service, including timing
- create or agree scripts for others to read, if wanted
- full walk through prior to ceremony by phone or skype
- family support and guidance at your service
BOOKING FEE (if privately booked)
